Gandi dreams of becoming a professional. Gandi was accepted into the Universidad Autónoma Juan Misael Saracho and now with the chance to achieve his dream is concerned about affording tuition fees. He plans on graduating in December 2014, but without a loan from Vittana he thinks that he may need to take time off to work and save until he can return to school.
With the loan, Gandi plans to buy his school books. Up until now he has been managing to get by without them but it has become a challenge. With books and school supplies he feels he will be able to get better grades. In addition to his responsibilities at school, Gandi currently works 40 hours a week as a technician and earns $6 a day. Currently Gandi earns $6 a day. With a degree in business he expects to earn $20 a day. Unfortunately, Gandi's parents never had the opportunity to complete their high school education. Without the opportunity for a higher degree, his parents never had the chance to move up. Growing up, finances were always been tight. With two older siblings attending college already, Gandi is unsure how he will be able to finance his education on his own.
This loan is administered by Vittana's partner Banco Fie.
